The Joyful Journeys Vacation Design Plan

We follow a 5 step plan to deliver the vacation of your dreams.

Step 1: We listen to you.

A complimentary vacation consultation allows us to understand your vacation expectations. We discuss special needs that must be considered for the comfort of your family and experiences that will help you realize the most value for your time and money.

If, at the conclusion of the complimentary consultation, you are ready to enlist the ongoing services and expertise of Joyful Journeys, a Vacation Design Fee is collected and the real planning begins!

Step 2: We go to work.

Your Vacation Designer will create a customized travel proposal that meets your needs and fulfills your wishlist.

Step 3: We ask for feedback.

You tell us what you love about the proposal and what you want to change. Your Vacation Designer tweaks the proposal to perfection.

Step 4: You relax.

Your Vacation Designer takes care of all of the itinerary details and manages changes that may arise before travel. We work only with suppliers we trust to deliver the quality experiences you deserve.

Step 5: You travel with full confidence!

Your Vacation Designer will provide complete travel documents and a pre-departure check-up where you may ask all your lingering questions. Plus, your Joyful Journeys Vacation Designer is just a phone call or email away should you need assistance while traveling!

Vacation Design Fee

Joyful Journeys creates vacations that are exceptional, memorable, inspiring, and designed just for you. The process requires knowledge and expertise acquired through education and personal experience. It also demands a considerable commitment of time and effort for research of destinations, accommodations, transportation, tours and excursions, special needs, and travel trends specific to your trip.

At Joyful Journeys, we work for YOU, not for the travel supplier. We tailor vacation packages filled with experiences that make YOU happy, not experiences that will garner supplier favors for the agency or individual Vacation Designers. We provide expertise, management of details, and personalized support from initial consultation to your safe return home… instant dividends on your investment of both finances and valuable vacation time.

You may ask, “Don’t you get paid on commission?” While it’s common for suppliers to pay a commission for travel advisor bookings, not all suppliers follow that practice … and some that do pay poorly. Commissions are paid after travel, meaning travel advisors receive zero compensation from suppliers for time and effort put into research that doesn’t result in a traveled booking.

We desire to lavish our attention and expertise on clients who value us as much as we value them. Payment of the Vacation Design Fee confirms that you are committed to the success of your vacation and to a long-term relationship with your Vacation Designer. The Vacation Design Fee allows your Vacation Designer to focus on your amazing vacation!

Value begins from the moment we accept your project, and we guarantee you will receive plenty of bang for your Vacation Design Fee buck!
